5 small garden design ideas
Just because your outside space doesn’t comprise of acres of land, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy what you do have!
Whether you have a large garden, or a small balcony, little changes can help!
Make use of grass – Laying artificial grass will mean your garden stays lush and green all year-round without the added annoyance of having to get the mower out to trim up the small area of grass you have. Artificial grass can transform a balcony, bringing some green to what can be, a concrete jungle.
Use the barriers – Planting up your walls or fences will add extra growing space. Climbing plants, hanging baskets or pouches can give the illusion of more space. This will allow you to grow a large variety of flowers or vegetables, without taking up valuable floor space.
Pot features – Make use of your space with pot plants. Use a number of evergreen plants within your pots and along the borders to show greenery year-round. Try to keep your pots all one colour theme, to not make your garden look to cluttered.
Think about plant size – Before choosing a plant, consider its size when it is grown. A plant which is too big for your small garden may take over, causing detriment to other plants. Consider instead planting with different heights along your borders for a dramatic effect.
Illusion – Hang some vintage mirrors along the fence to reflect the surrounding garden, giving the illusion of more space. Best suited to gardens without children or pets!
